I worked Saturday morning.  When I finished, Andrew (home for a day) and the girls were at the new outlet mall in Leeds, AL.  Did I want to come?  It was a long drive, but I made it.  I didn't have my camera, and that made me sad.  I never thought I'd be sad to not have my camera at a mall.

But Andrew had his new phone from work, and he let me use it as a camera.  A little editing and I had the perfect picture of my girls playing in the kids play area at the new outlet shops.


It took about 4 times pleading with Leah to come sit next to Audrey, 5 more pictures of blurry faces while they are moving around, countless cries of 'smile Leah ... keep smiling please' and 'Audrey, Audrey look up at mommy', cheering from the peanut gallery (Andrew and his mom), but finally ... finally I snapped a picture of the two of them mostly smiling and kinda looking in the same direction.

This picture makes me smile!

  1. So cute! It is so hard to get more than 1 child in a picture to cooperate!

  2. Aww! How cute! So hard to get a good picture of two kids together.

  3. I love the movement in this picture and how it really does feel as though you froze time. Very cute!

  4. Sweet pictures!! Funny how sometimes the oddest places make the best photos.

  5. awww how sweet!
    Im sending out christmas cards, Id like to send you one could you send me ur addy in an email?

  6. I take my camera every where now after having numerous situations occur like you just described. A photo op when you least expect it in the most unlikely place is often the one I love most!

  7. So cute! We struggle with co-operation in our house too.
